    pc2020- your the one who clearly knows zero about the islands Agriculture. Seems odd there is a close relationship between Islands and Uruguayan Framers with social and professional visits to each others countries at times.
    You make me remember a quote form a Uruguayan friend- “ we get lots and lots of Argentine Tourists coming to Uruguay, and to invest and settle here- as we are the Country they never became”/

    Clearly another of 'thinks' sock puppets

    The Falkland Islanders obviously know more about agriculture, finance, self-determination, democracy etc.etc. etc than Argentina does.

    Though to be fair Argentina knows an awful lot more about reneging on it's debts, murdering it's own people, dictatorships, harbouring nazis etc. etc. - sad....

    Mate they need to be there just to annoy the Argy Planters over the river, getting drunks is just a bonus.

    You see the problem is actually an Argentinian one, not a S. American one.

    Truth is the rest of S. America just don’t like you.

    If there were another conflict (heaven forbid), all S. American countries would “support Argy Hermanos”.

    Venezuela, Cuba maybe Bolivia would send help, if they had any to send. Brazil, Peru, Colombia would complain but do nothing. Chile and Uruguay whilst saying they support Argentina would probably secretly help the British.

    PC- I have asked you this before- so now again- What is the money the Islands receive from British Taxpayers5
    We buy British Goods and ship then here- approx. £100-£150million a year at least.We recruit workers from UK and pay them well - and a big lot of that ends up back in the UK Bank Accounts- several £ millions a year.
    Our taxes pay for about 40 odd students a year to go to UK to study at Colleges and Universities- brings those Education places in UK a £million or two a year.
    And so the list goes on - so do please tell us what the UK taxpayer pays for down here?
    By the way the whole EU does NOT support Argentina- nor does ALL Africa- nor ALL ASIA.

    If the UK government were so benevolent as BorJo claims, the UK would send a paper handkerchief to wipe the tears to each and every Argentino who, in Argentina's dire state, cares about something so minor as who owns the British Falkland Islands - ie. all 460,000 of them. The remaining 42,000,000 Argentinos have enough to do staying alive in the country's decaying economy.

    The current actions and Saber rattling by the Argentine is a re-run of 1982. When ever the government of the Argentine is in trouble and can't pay it's Debt it goes to War or gets into a boarder dispute with some one. Now they're doing both. It isn't like the People on the Falkland's just got there or that the Argentina's would put the land to good use...It's just a way of distracting the people in a time of trouble and a hope to get the fishing rights and oil rights that they can sell and steal the money.

    Mr. Kent taking note of this?
    This is “reciprocating” and “reconciliation” in the indoctrinated fascist Argentina's style. Every time it will be like this, no matter how nice you were to them yesterday!
    Is this what they taught you in the Marxist ivory towers of Oxford and Cambridge? Perhaps “the good old British Compromise”?
    To understand this you MUST understand indoctrination and its consequences.
    If you CAN understand indoctrination you will understand many of our problems like Argentina and like Islam, it is the same thing, you can't negotiate with either because of the indoctrination has made the mental structures rigid and unchangeable and you debate with a wall, with a written constitution.

    Jesus- you are even thicker than I thought you were. You know - in order to understand where Argentina is coming from(or is trying to come from) I have read lots of historical articles printed in Argentina and talked to many hundreds of ordinary Argentines- as the only way to understand a dispute - is to understand the case of both sides - so them you can form a better judged opinion as to who is correct.
    It might help you and some of your nuttier politicians if they tried the same.
    Nest thing you will be claiming that the nasty Brits expelled all the people from Argentina from the islands in 1833!

    Islander1, your comment although true, is unfair. Open up the Falklands to people from the UK to go and live. At present anyone from the UK can visit the Falklands, but not work without a permit that only lasts 4 years and may be withdrawn at any time. Without the ability for people from the British Isles to come and make a life for themselves without fear of being suddenly unemployed, therefore unable to make a life for themselves, there will always be issues with emigrants from the UK to the Falklands.

    What we need to do is incorporate the Falklands into sending it's own MP to Westminster to speak for the Islands. Remove the work permit requiring emigrants from the British Isles after say, 12 months. People want to be sure or be able to know what it's really like before committing a permanent move.

    Please don't belittle the money spent on the defence of the Falklands. There's hardly a person in the UK who begrudge or resent it. A child born in the Falklands or Falkirk are just as British as each other.

    “The whole continent supports Argentina,....” Wow, a wee overstatement.

    Fact is, only Venezuela supports Argyland's ridiculous claim...not exactly the whole continent....as to Bolivia, I'm sure they have more important internal issues to think about.

    Brazil doesn't really support Argentina's claim...it only pretends to....because it's the diplomatic way of saying “f*ck off ”, and easier to deal with.

    But as you say, his 'MEIN GOTT !!!! ' is indicative of something unsavory...perhaps a Nazi still hiding out in Argy Patagonia ?

    Funny thing though, is that while many idiots like pc20 express their disdain for the Falkland's, they keep on whining because they can't have them.
    Think they should sh*t or get off the pot.

    Britain took by force islands it had never properly nor officially come to posses, because they were about a dispute it had never won nor resolved. They took them from a new claimant country which contrary to Britain was settled on the islands and had a political logic for their sovereign right to posses them. Britain saw the opportunity offered by that country not being able to defend itself, and that therefore it would be their last chance to grab these islands, now that their original rivals were no longer claiming them. Then it sent its own people to stand their ground with some bull shit lie about an “oversees territory” in order to keep the country it had expelled by force off the islands.
    That's all there is to it, so; as you can see there is no dispute or conflict. Just a narrative that explains what happened. But since the British recent being the robbing bullies and abusers of the story, they retaliate with guilt and scornful insolence, attacking Argentina itself with a hateful bigoted arrogance which all too transparently attempts to hide the fact that they're on the wrong, rather than calmly and confidently making their points with a sense of maturity and respect... which they can't because, they know they don't have any such points.
    This is basically the reason why the British always react with hysterical defensive belittlement and insolence towards anyone who attempts to bring up any of their numerous territorial issues characterized by their usurping abuse of power and military bullying, which they all are.

    Britain “engaged in an act of illegal force”, in 1833. It had no right to depose a country that claimed the islands without opposition in sound political, and geographical logic. Britain did not want to lose a military outpost, it never intended to colonize and incorporate the islands like Argentina had, until it needed to in order to fake legitimacy.
    Who's talking about “international law”? I'm talking about being good and respectful human beings that know how to properly share this Earth, without resorting to guns and bullshit in order to grab stuff from others in the world.

    “Britain “engaged in an act of illegal force”, in 1833.” They were in complete compliance with international law then.
    General theory of law and state by Hans Kelsen
    214 The Elements Of The State
    Nevertheless, there occurs, according to international law, a territorial change, provided that the occupation, made with the intention of incorporating the occupied territory into the territory of the occupying State, assumes a permanent character, and that means that the legal order of the occupying State becomes efficacious for the territory in question. … Taking possession through military force of the territory of another State against the latter's will is possible, however, without any military resistance on the part of the victim. Provided that a unilateral act of force performed by one State against another is not considered to be war in itself (war being, according to traditional opinion, “a contention between two or more States through their armed forces” and hence at least a bilateral action) annexation is not only possible in time of war, but also in time of peace. The decisive point is that annexation, that is, taking possession of another State's territory with the intention to acquire it, constitutes acquisition of this territory even without the consent of the State to which the territory previously belonged, if the possession is “firmly established.” It makes no difference whether the annexation takes place after an occupatio bellica or not.

    In 1833 the British recovered the Falklands after they were illegally invaded by the UP of the River Plate in 1832 and the diplomatic protests were ignored.

    The UP garrison were evicted and the settlers allowed to stay, they had permission from the British to be there.

    The British first raised their flag there in 1690, the first people to do so.

    That is ”the uncomfortable truth” about history, for you.

    My advice to you is to up your white ovals tablets to 200mg and your little pink round ones to 150mg. Don’t forget to avoid grapefruit and make sure you take them with food.

    Then I‘d like you to do a little exercise in your journal. I want you to write down how you’re feeling this week and compare that to how you were the week before. Then I want you to write down the things you think that have changed to make you feel like this. What can you do to help you feel better?

    We’ve talked about the Falklands lots of times before, and that is something that isn’t going to change. So what can you focus on to take your mind off it? Are you still socializing? Remember how much worse you feel when you lock yourself away from the world.

    Up your meds, do your exercise, and come and see me again next week.

    In 1833 the islands did not belong to Britain. It is just that simple. Anything that tries to deny that is propagandist educational brain washing through British sourced medias of communication. Clearly the British did not consider the islands significant enough to possess when they left Port Egmont after the battle with Spain and Buenos Aires over the islands. Leaving a plaque on the beach warning others that the islands belong to Britain means absolutely nothing real, and is nothing more than ridiculous imperialistic greed delusionally thinking it can pick and choose what to keep of our world, in the same spirit it has attacked usurped and robbed the peoples of India, of Africa, of the Middle East and the South Pacific. You's is a society that has been groomed sick to believe it has more rights to this world than others, and that war is fair game for taking things from other countries.

    Jealousy will get you nowhere - you are so green with envy that it twists your very soul.

    Grow up, take some pills if you want but stop being such a fool.

    Nobody cares about what happened 200-300 years ago. The only thing that matters is what the Falkland Islanders themselves desire today in the 21st century.

    Nobody cares what Argentina thinks, yesterday, today or tomorrow - it is nothing to do with them what the FI want.

    It seems to me that Argentina has no right to condemn or even criticise the British Empire unless Argentina prepared to realise that it to attacked, usurped and robbed the peoples of South America. The difference is, of course that the British Empire has been dissolved whereas the Argentine Empire is still in existence and desperately trying to enlarge itself in the South Atlantic and Antarctica at the expense of the FI and others.

    You know ... I'm a bit of a “psychology buff” and I got to tell you, the continuous flow of identical and repetitive responses I get from specific cultures have taught me so much about their cultural mindset and reasoning, that I can only be humbly thankful for it.
    One that comes up often is “your jealousy” as in - “you are so green with envy” and even more often “Nobody cares what Argentina thinks, yesterday, today or tomorrow”. The correlation with this depiction of YOUR cultural personality uncannily corroborates your country's history long record of rape, piracy usurpation, phony invitations to collaborate so as to insert your advantages in unsuspecting countries. Your deeply seeded evil as a nation, in other words.
    I was not born in Argentina, nor do I live there, which gives me an invaluable audience seat perceptive through which I could not enjoy more watching how a country that has managed to fool the world of its virtuous, so lowly and pathetically looks for the wounded, the trusting, the needy and the weak to leach off like a scavenging greedy vulture, only motivated by those instances in which it notices others moving in on something, whatever that may be, trying to make sure they don't grab something valuable in every case they are able to be overpowered. Rats of the world. Jealous of that??? ... No sweetie, that is only what you need to believe in order to not face your own carcass of a wretched soulless and bloodless being.

    “ The correlation with this depiction of YOUR cultural personality uncannily corroborates your country's history long record of rape, piracy usurpation, phony invitations to collaborate so as to insert your advantages in unsuspecting countries. Your deeply seeded evil as a nation, in other words.”.

    Showing your ignorance again... I assume the above is levelled at the UK although it better fits Spain and Portugal. It will come as a great disappointment to you then for me to inform you (as everyone who reads these threads well knows) that I am not British nor American nor Spanish nor Portuguese nor Argentine (thank God)...

    So I will follow your example and repeat myself:-

    “Jealousy will get you nowhere - you are so green with envy that it twists your very soul.

    Grow up, take some pills if you want but stop being such a fool.

    Nobody cares about what happened 200-300 years ago. The only thing that matters is what the Falkland Islanders themselves desire today in the 21st century.

    Nobody cares what Argentina thinks, yesterday, today or tomorrow - it is nothing to do with them what the FI want.

    It seems to me that Argentina has no right to condemn or even criticise the British Empire unless Argentina prepared to realise that it to attacked, usurped and robbed the peoples of South America. The difference is, of course that the British Empire has been dissolved whereas the Argentine Empire is still in existence and desperately trying to enlarge itself in the South Atlantic and Antarctica at the expense of the FI and others.”

    Do grow up there's a good boy.

    Titmonde: “You's is a society that has been groomed sick to believe it has more rights to this world than others, and that war is fair game for taking things from other countries. Completely arrogant pedantic fascistic thinking logic, yet ultimately sociopathically ill minded.”

    One answer to that; 1982!

    “In 1833 the islands did not belong to Britain”....

    Well, if you consider that in 1832 England did (own the Falkland's), and that after 6 weeks of occupation by an illegal Argy force in 1833 (as they were still a Spanish colony), England regained them, I think that what TiTMonde is trying to convey is that the Argies were under the impression that they were not Britain's for 6 weeks - in 1833.....only problem is he does not know how to explain it clearly.

    And his “I'm a bit of a “psychology buff””, says it all....no need to explain any further.....what he meant to say was 'pyschotic buffoon'.
